Raise your hand if you hate cardio! In my mind I imagine a sea of women with two hands raised high to the sky right now!
It’s just because cardio can be so damn boring sometimes! Are you with me?
Getting on the treadmill or stairmaster for an hour is like torture. Some people love it but it’s just not for me…and it doesn’t have to be for you either.
Back when I was competing, I was told the only way to burn fat was to spend long periods of time on the treadmill or stairmaster and I HATED it! I felt like I was wasting so much time and it made me dread going to the gym.
So I found a better way. A more EFFECTIVE way called HIIT or High Intensity Interval Training!
Maybe you’ve heard of it but not quite sure how it works. Don’t let the fancy terminology confuse you.
In general, it is short periods of high intensity work followed by short periods of active rest. That sequence is repeated for a certain period of time or number of exercises.
It is an absolute fat destroyer and the best part is, HIIT workouts can be done in about 15-30 minutes if you are short on time!
So whether this is a new concept to you or you are just looking for a fun new workout to try, I wanted to show you this awesome full body HIIT workout I did at home earlier this week. It had me sweating my butt off and girl it felt so good to get a killer workout in even though my schedule was packed that day!
So give it a shot! Skip the gym today or that long run you’ve been dreading and make yourself a spot in the living room to get your sweat on. I promise you are going to have way more fun and burn tons more fat in about half the time!
And here’s a little bonus tip for ya…STOP LETTING YOUR WORKOUTS GO TO WASTE!
Here’s what I mean. Exercising is only one piece of the puzzle. If you do great with working out but then fill your body with garbage food, you’re not going to see all the benefits from those workouts!
Pair that killer full body HIIT workout with a nutritious whole foods meal to get the maximum benefit out of your hard work! If you’re just not real sure about how to eat healthy…don’t sweat it girl cuz I got you covered!

For this HIIT full body work, you will do each exercise for 30 seconds then take 30 seconds of active rest and go straight into the next exercise.
The active rest could be marching/jogging in place or having your own little dance party but just make sure to keep your body moving!
Run through all the exercises for 2-3 rounds for a killer 20-30 minute home workout!
Hope you enjoy this one :)
